North America

northamericaManfred Lachs North America (the North American Regional Competition) is held annually in Washington, DC. on a Friday and Saturday at the end of March or the first weekend of April. The Competition is judged by experts in the field of space law and provides an opportunity for student teams to meet many of those judges after the competition is over.

The Regional Competition selects the winning team that will be funded to travel to the International Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition.

The Lachs Moot Calendar, available on the Lachs Moot main page, will have the entire schedule for the year.

The North American Regional Competition also welcomes teams from Latin American and Caribbean countries.

IISL Young Scholars Awards

The IISL Young Scholars Fund was created in 2011 to support the achievements of students participating in each of the four Regional Rounds of the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition. The Fund grants monetary awards in the following categories:

  • Winning Team: 200 Euros
  • Team with the Best Memorials: 125 Euros
  • Best Oralist of the Regional Round: 100 Euros

The Young Scholars Fund has been formed and is largely maintained by donations from IISL members, to honor the very significant achievement of these students.
